Holmes, Charles, editor


The Studio



Illustrated with 113 plates -- of which 18 are in color and 95 are in monochrome -- each with letterpress title, number, and photographer's credit. 28.6x20.2 cm (11¼x8"), original blue cloth, lettering in gilt; rebound in patterned cloth-backed paper boards, original paper covers laid down, red and silver gilt label on spine, patterned endpapers.

The introduction of color into photography immediately and profoundly changed the character of the field. This publication of The Studio was important: because "never before has it been possible to arrange so representative a series by [photographers] so diverse..." Featuring works by many of the leading American and European photographers of the day, including Clarence H. White, James Craig Annan, Baron De Meyer, Annie Brigman, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Gertrude Kasebier, Heinrich Kuhn, Alfred Stieglitz, and others. Second copy contains full page print inserted at rear which functioned as advertisement for Carl Zeiss cameras.

Lot Amendments

Touches of wear along edges and ends of spine, some bumps to corners; occasional smudging and foxing; a few photo numbers in rebound version sometimes cut off along margin; interiors clean throughout.
